Sculpture & Integrate Media

Students working in our Sculpture & Integrated Media classes frequently use materials in three-dimensions to problem solve.  These critical thinking exercises are useful in a variety of applications, such as, carving in stone, casting in concrete or plaster, welding metals, constructing wooden forms, blowing glass, or assembling found objects to create sculptural.
